Special Announcement

Anthony Gaetano Positano

August 14, 1954- September 2, 2023

His generosity lives on in the hearts of his family and many friends. God speed.

145da55af000f74424cc7b0506019248Anthony Positano, 69, tragically passed away on the afternoon of September 2, 2023 at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, Ontario, doing what he loved. He was born August 14, 1954 in North York, Ontario to Barbara and Mario Positano, youngest brother to siblings, Luigi and Luciana.

Tony was a true entrepreneur, bringing life into all of his endeavors. As a second-generation Italian born to immigrant parents, his resourcefulness drove him to create opportunities where there were none. He was respected as a hardworking man who learned the skills needed to get any job done.

Tony’s loving energy was infectious - wherever he went he turned people into friends. Tony was a proud father and grandfather who would tell anyone within earshot about his beloved family. Tony’s true version of success was measured by how much he could give. 

He enjoyed hockey and golf but traveling with his crew to the most electrifying racing events across Canada and the US is what drove him. Tony was a passionate member of the racing community, his name synonymous with promoting the sport, signing merchandise for young fans, a cigar in hand, and a friendly face to all who attended.

He is survived by his wife Joanne; 3 children Andrea & husband Sid; Nadia; Anthony & wife Tashiana; and his 2 grandchildren, Elias & Simon, of whom he was the biggest fan.
